In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life. He has joined a band of soldiers led by a warlord named David, seeking to bury the past that refuses to leave him. Their ragged army is disgruntled and full of reckless men. Some are loyal to David, but others are only with him for the promise of captured wealth. While the ruthless and increasingly mad King Saul marches hopelessly against the powerful Philistines, loyal son Jonathan in tow, the land of the Hebrew tribes has never been more despondent—and more in need of rescue. Over the course of ten days, from snowy mountain passes to sword-wracked battlefields, Benaiah and his fellow mercenaries must call upon every skill they have to survive and establish the throne for David—if they don’t kill each other first. Day of War brings to life the exploits of the Mighty Men of Israel, a rag-tag band of disgruntled warriors on the run with David, the soon-to-be King. Their legendary deeds are recorded in 2 Samuel 23 and 1 Chronicles 11 Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kel | 2/20/2014

    " Intense! It reads like an insider's look at the days that David led his Mighty Men when Saul wanted him dead. David is of course a part of the book, and we get to see scenes with Jonathan, Saul, other Mighty Men, and other warriors. But the main story is about Benaiah who is struggling with his faith but serves David, the man after God's heart, because he has vengeance in his heart and because something about David continues to draw him. We are looking forward to the release of Book # 2 of the series! "

    " Awesome story about one of Ethan's favorite guys - Benaiah. You know, the one who jumped in a pit with a lion on a snowy day? Yes, that one. After reading it, I read through 2nd Samuel and 1st Kings. Not many books will spur you back to the Bible, but this one did. Great read, especially for guys. "

    " Good debut novel. Looking forward to the next. The writing struggled from time to time. We talked as a group about transitions, which were the weakest part. However the immense research and compelling storytelling were awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madison | 1/10/2012

    " What a fabulous book! I read the whole thing in one day. Excellent writing. A real eye opening look into David and his band of men. Lots of action but thought provoking too. Definitely up there on my short list of great books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/7/2011

    " Excellent book!! I devoured this one and am excited there will be more-five in all. It's very cool to see biblical characters potrayed in thus way and to get an even further experience of who they might have been as men and women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 8/31/2011

    " Taking stories of the Bible and novelizing them... I like the idea and I liked the implementation. Well done Mr. Graham. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Franklin | 7/23/2011

    " Took a while to get started, but finished in whiz-bang fashion! Excited to see a story that tries to incorporate Biblical characters. The author starts off almost too simplistically, but rounds off the characters and the story well by the end.
    Looking forward to the rest of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 7/22/2011

    " A novel about the Jewish King, David, and his band of warriors (the Mighty Men).

    Honestly took a while to get into this book and on some level I'm not sure what to make of it. Although I will pick up the next in the series, I'm not completely sold yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lomedriel | 7/17/2011

    " I like the fiction and the truth in the story of David. The style of writing made it an easy quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 7/2/2011

    " Interesting retelling of David's mighty men. I liked it. Cliff Graham's background as a military chaplain makes the story an accurate but bloody portrayal of ancient warfare. "
